It's not secret if you tell everyone about it

I used to have several of those. I never went there very often, and it seemed like every time I went back I had to get another card.

I'm certain I still have one in a box designed to hold business cards that has all kinds of cards I didn't want to throw away at the time.

The other one closed so you should ask the manager.

The real question is, can you still rent Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey?

There was a time when you had to go to a kind of a store to watch a movie at home, and sometimes you were out of luck - other people were watching it! In my day when we wanted internet we went to a coffee shop! Oh it sounds rough but there were still trees in those days.

Not the coffee shop, the computer repair shop, the 'day treatment' group at the clinic had some access from one of the staff's computers as well. I also saw Red Hat or Suse Linux at the computer shop or something but compiling it from line commands was a turn off and it was well over 20 years before I would used Linux Mint via a dual boot disk with Maya and Windows.

Overheard back in that timeframe, group of youngsters sitting around a fast food restaurant table.

Youngster #3 : "...I mean, c'mon, we all know there's only one real reason to go to college."
Chorus of all four: "Free internet!" [high fives]

"Trees?" Wasn't that before water you could drink only came in bottles? Before the first Fracking Wars, right?

I've seen pictures... they were everywhere... kinda in the way...
